A Fairfield Police officer was hurt Monday afternoon when a patrol car hit a tree.
The crash happened shortly after 4 p.m. on the eastbound Interstate 80 offramp at Air Base Drive.
Witness Rudy Carabajal told FOX40 the officer was trapped in the mangled car for some time.
“It took about an hour to get her out,” he said.
Traffic along I-80 was delayed as a result of the crash.
City councilmember Catherine Moy said the officer’s injuries are minor.
